Fantastic News!!


Well I'm very excited, I have managed to secure a job!!
Can't believe it, amazing :))

After finishing university 2 months ago, I have applied for several jobs with no success at all. Then with the advice of my daughter I looked at my CV. tweaked it a bit and the first job I applied for I got an interview!

It's amazing going into an interview to think that you may be competing against younger more talented applicants, and then receiving a phone call to say they picked you!

It is a six month contract, with our local City Council with the possibility of it becoming permanent full time at the end of 6 months.

My official job title will be Communication Officer with the Executive Support Unit,
(which sounds amazing, but really
I am just writing the press releases that go out to the media and public.)

I don't think it's quite sunk in yet, I start in 2 weeks time.

I'm chasing olives!
DRINKS ALL ROUND ON ME!! LOL

You'll be fine. I graduated in 1998 at the ripe old age of 42. It took me awhile to get that first job, but I've not looked back since. I've often had bosses that are younger than I am, but if you can handle that, no problem. In my present job there is a group of "kids" that I really enjoy working - they are about the same ages as my own kids.

Kayjay said...

Congratulations Carole. That is simply fantastic and well deserved. You'll be right now. After 6 months they won't want you to go and you'll probably get an even more skilled job that uses your knowledge even more. Big Hugs
